30m.

Rockfax Description
Brilliant wall-climbing on excellent rock. Start in the centre of the wall at a boulder below a wide horizontal crack at 3m.
From the wide crack move onto the wall above via a pocket up and right. Follow the wall on good holds to the wide mid-height break of The Smile. Traverse the wide break left for 5m to below an old ring-peg in the upper wall. Climb the fingery wall past the peg to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The peg has been removed. There is adequate protection available.

βeta: It is a BIT bold at the start - you're quite close to the boulders. Another classic Sharpnose wall climb, made amenable by the good rest in the break. Getting to and past the peg requires some gusto, the finish is very nice.

βeta: This route is NOT bold at the start. All you have to do is place a small friend diagonally in the diagonal finger buckets and it is safe. Quite a soft touch for E3 IMO.
